Smart Design Studio sought to create a store that complemented the designer’s pieces that cleverly combine experimental construction with traditional tailoring. A celebration of modern architecture, the interior is the culmination of the synergy shared between two like-minded Australian designers, Dion Lee and Smart Design Studio.
The store presents an understated luxury experience with grit, a reflection of the growth and maturity of the Dion Lee brand. Honest in materiality, hard edged and elemental in forms, the store is constructed with minimal ornamentation, elevated by concise and considered details that emulate the sharp lines and unexpected details of the collection.
The highly curated palette consisting of polished concrete flooring, glass, mirror, and stainless steel, compliments the Dion Lee spatial experience. The grey travertine that features throughout as display tables, stools and staircase appears in various finishes from in filled, unfilled, honed to sandblasted. Limited in color and embellishment, the resulting space is both polished and textured; luxurious and gritty, distinctively on brand, a subtle yet striking canvas to showcase the seasonal fashion.
